Yesterday, I had a suicidal episode. I was very depressed, and I'd said horrible things to my father.
I was walking outside, with no idea what I was doing, or where I was going.
Suddenly, I looked up at the tree in front of me, and there was a crow (my totem) in plain view.
I stopped. I asked, "what?"
He said, "Be Patient. Everything will be fine, right?"
I asked, "what should I do about my fear?"
He said nothing, then began to fly. He circled around me, and landed in a different part of the tree with another crow.
The message was clear: I would be protected by my spiritual friends, and they would lead me to the love I was searching for.
I walked back home, apologized to my father, and was finally able to explain what was going on in my head (minus the guide conversation).
Always be open to them, and they'll come when you need them. You're not the only thing aware of your needs.
